Key Points: Fear of success is not the same as fear of failure, although both are related. Paradoxically, when you suffer from a subconscious fear of success, you are afraid of the consequences of what happens when you actually achieve what you want to achieve. This powerful guided meditation helps you to explore your subconscious mind to discover why you are holding yourself back from reaching your goals. It then supports you in reprogramming your mind by replacing your limiting beliefs about success with empowering, positive affirmations. This guided meditation is a self-hypnosis that helps you to achieve your goals.
Transcript of this Guided Meditation to Overcome Your Fear of Success
Hi, this is Julia. Welcome to this guided meditation and self-hypnosis on losing your fear of success. This program will help you overcome what holds you back from achieving what you want in life. Before you get comfortable, though, either sitting upright or lying down on your back, please get a pen and paper ready so that you can write down any insights you gain during this process immediately after the session.
Simply pause the video and return once you are ready to begin.
Now close your eyes and let your arms rest gently by your side or on your thighs. Let your palms face upward and let them be open and receiving to the energy surrounding you, and uncross your legs. Take a long, deep breath in and hold it for five seconds, and breathe out.
Again, take a deep breath in, hold it, and let it go. Keep breathing. When you breathe in, breathe in relaxation and calmness. When you breathe out, make it long and slow, and let go of the stress inside your body and mind.
Let go of stress, tension, and negative thoughts. Let it all go. This is YOUR time, your time to explore your deepest beliefs. You have earned this time for yourself and you deserve it, so let go of the day and your duties. Breathe in deeply, and feel peace and calmness flow through your body. Feel your body soften and get heavier as you breathe out.
Find your own, comfortable rhythm of slow, deep breathing, and feel your mind drift into a relaxed state of theta brain waves, this dreamy state between being awake and falling asleep. Feel your chair or bed underneath you. Feel it pushing up against your weight. It supports you. It holds you. You are absolutely safe and there is nothing you need to do right now but relax.
I’m going to count down from 10, and with each descending number, your relaxation doubles and your mind drifts deeper into this powerful theta state.
Ten. Let go of everything and still your mind.
Nine. You feel so peaceful and calm.
Eight. Your body feels heavier and heavier.
Seven. You are so deeply relaxed.
Six. Your relaxation doubles again.
Five. You are halfway there, feeling so calm and peaceful.
Four. Your mind is so at ease.
Three. Your consciousness is pure and positive.
Two. Let your relaxation double again.
One. You are so incredibly relaxed and calm and safe.
Do you know that you have immense potential? Every one of us is born with so much potential that we could never develop all of it in just one lifetime. But everyone can achieve far more than we think we ever could. What is holding you back from becoming the successful being you were born to be?
Your mind is very powerful at creating beliefs for you without you even noticing it. Your brain creates meaning from memories of your past. This is necessary for us to learn and evolve, but your brain doesn’t distinguish between empowering memories and those that disempower you.
It projects previous negative experiences into your future and this is how fear is created.
You fear to be successful because of something you’ve experienced before, and you are afraid such a scenario will repeat.
What happened to you that makes you afraid of being successful? Did a co-worker become jealous of the raise you got for doing a great job? Or is it something that happened to you when you were a child?
Did some kids call you a nerd when you were doing really well on a test in school? None of this has anything to do with you or your success. It only means that those people weren’t happy with themselves. What else could have happened that makes you avoid success?
Go back into your past and look for these events but know that none of this can hurt you here and now.
You are only an observer, analyzing events that no longer exist. You are absolutely safe.
Whatever you have discovered, your fear lives in your past. It lives in a time that doesn’t exist. Your past is over and your future is not set in stone. Your future is what you turn it into, and you are immensely powerful.
You have the power to craft your future the way you want it to be, and most of it depends on your mindset. What do you believe about your future? What do you believe your future to be like?
When you think about the worst possible outcome that could happen when you become successful, it feels very real and vivid you can feel the emotions inside of you as if it were happening now. Your brain creates emotions that keep you from following your dreams because they seem to be dangerous.
But this is only your mind playing a trick on you.
It’s like watching a horror movie that scares you. It isn’t real but it can paralyze you and it can scare you from taking the actions you need to take to get to your dream.
But what if you were to imagine the best possible outcome instead? You feel lots of positive emotions, you feel empowered, and you feel happy. So, think about how good it feels to be successful.
People love to talk to you about what you have achieved. They are fascinated by what you have to share and how you improve the lives of others with what you do. They are grateful that you found the courage to pour your heart and soul into what is important to you.
You have such a positive impact on the lives of so many people.
Like-minded people approach you to exchange opinions and to tap into your wisdom on your field of expertise. You are a master at what you do so these conversations come to you so easily.
You are surrounded by people who respect you, who love you and who are proud of you for your achievements.
They are happy for you and celebrate with you.
People who are jealous have no room in your life. You spend your time with people who know how much time and effort you put into your dream. They admire your determination, your perseverance and your passion for what you do.
You never give up but you follow your north star. You do what you do because you want to help others, not just to make money. The people close to you know this and love you even more for it.
Your success is so important for helping other people. You are a compassionate human being and you live to your full potential. You don’t look down on others. You set a great example. You take others by the hand and inspire them to tap into their own potential. Because you made it, they know they can make it, too. You are a source of great inspiration to your family your friends and so many other people.
You have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. You are confident about what you do, and you are looking forward to how your success is going to change your life for the better. It feels good to grow, to do things you haven’t done before.
You’re pushing your boundaries and you see that so much more is possible.
You have so much more energy than you think and you make sure to recharge yourself every day. Your success doesn’t drain you but it gives you the means to live a better, more fulfilled life. Your success is the door to the life you have always wanted.
You know what you want and you take action towards reaching your goals.
You have your mind set to doing whatever it takes to be successful.
You take good care of your health so you can face any challenge with strength and calmness. You set goals that inspire you. You set the bar high enough so that they make an impact once you get there. Your goals challenge you, but you love to work towards your dream. It is fun and exciting because you know why you do it.
You wake up every morning excited to get to work on your vision. You can’t wait to take the next step towards your goal.
It is so easy for you to stay focused and undistracted. Your mind is sharp and you know how to make the best decisions to make your dream come true.
You always have the big picture in mind and you also know which details to focus on, but you don’t lose yourself in perfectionism.
Your productive output is high and meaningful.
You never give up. You are so committed to your goals that nothing can derail you. You are on track and you stay on track. Coping with challenges and criticism is easy for you.
You know what to do you know when to do it, and you simply do it. You act on your vision today. Visualize the ideal outcome of your dream. Think of all the benefits it brings to your life.
See it in your mind.
Hold that image in your mind and think about the first step you need to take today to move towards that vision. What is the first thing you are going to do today that moves you into your desired direction?
You are absolutely determined and you are starting today.
Nothing can stop you from living the life you want. You owe it to yourself and you owe it to everybody else. Do you feel that tingling in your fingertips? It’s your energy flowing through you, calling you to action. Rub your fingertips together gently. Move your hands and your feet.
Feel the material underneath you that supports you.
Slowly come back to the world around you.
Open your eyes.
You are so very present in this moment. You are alert. You are determined and you know what you have to do.
Your future starts right now.
